We love our couples and the feeling is mutual.
Christina + Alix- August 2015
Alaina was the first wedding vendor we booked, and by far the best decision we could have made. She guided us through the 9-month planning process for our semi-destination wedding with grace and poise. All of the vendors she recommended were high quality, reasonably priced, LGBT-friendly, and thrilled to work on any wedding she was involved in, which gave us confidence in her skills and reputation from the start. It was important to us that we never felt like we "had" to do something just because it was a wedding, and Alaina was not only excited to discuss and embrace our less conventional ideas, she was able to execute them perfectly on the wedding day. Lastly, if you're hoping for a stress-free wedding week, Alaina can definitely make that happen. On our wedding day, she didn't ask me or my fiancee a single question about set-up or clean-up -- she just handled everything, and it came together perfectly.

Alaina is incredible. Just incredible. She has such a wonderful way of putting you at ease during what can be a very stressful experience (especially for us as we planned our wedding long distance!). Alaina handled everything we threw at her (intense family members! a photo booth person who forgot the guest book! a hurricane preventing some friends from coming!) with pose, grace, humor, and kindness. Our wedding was beautiful and perfect: we owe so much of that to Alaina's vendor suggestions, advice, and day-of cat-wrangling. Seriously, if you want someone to manage all the details and also be a huge advocate for your wants and needs, hire root+gather.

We worked with Crystal for our Boulder wedding in September and she was absolutely amazing to work with. Organization is definitely not one of my best areas and I'm not sure what we would have done without her. Even my mother (who I must say is very organized herself) thought it was a must to work with R&G and Crystal as they helped make sure the month and wedding day were absolutely perfect. Alaina helped with the wedding day and even with a delayed bus and late start to the ceremony, I felt at ease knowing they were handling everything, My husband and I had the best day day of our lives to date and we owe a huge part of it to Root and Gather for their help! Thank you!!!

I have so much love for Alaina at root + gather! Choosing to work with her as our 45 day wedding coordinator was one of the best decisions we made while planning our Lyons Farmette wedding.
We weren't sure what to expect while planning an out-of-state wedding, and actually signed with her before meeting her in person. But once my (now) husband and I met her while in town on a wedding planning trip, we felt an instant connection with her and were so thrilled with our decision (bonus, she's hilarious!)! She's a true professional, and was on top of every single detail - providing us with recaps of what had been decided and what still needed to happen. She helped us with little details that us wedding planning rookies had no idea how to handle. She gave great direction around vendors and decorations. She encouraged us to make our day unique, and us (encouraging my husband to wear a wig for our grand entrance before dinner - because, why not?!). She answered our (somewhat frantic) week-of texts and phone calls around around decorations we hadn't thought about. She hung our decorations day-of at the venue. She even snuggled with our lonely pups who were on-site and could hear the fun we were having, but were unable to be out enjoying it. Overall she made sure we didn't have a thing to worry about while the event was taking place.
I could go on, but basically she and her team are rockstars. You'll feel completely taken care of working with root + gather.
Caitlin + Julian - July 2017
We used both Crystal and Alaina on our wedding day, but Crystal was our main planner from start to finish and made our wedding a complete dream. And when I say dream, I mean ACTUALLY, truly, 100% made our dream day come true more than we even thought possible! She knew all the right vendors, had the best attitude, was always available when I needed her, helped us stay within budget (we were only a little bit over and it was my fault because I fell in love with a more expensive dress... oopsie!), helped us through any stress that came up, and more. After reflecting on how perfect our wedding was, we truly felt like we had a new best friend in her and that a best friend planned our wedding -- not just a random stranger. We absolutely love Crystal and can't wait until we see her again!! HIGHLY recommend using root + gather for your wedding planning -- it was the best investment we made.
Ashley + Cory - June 2017
Crystal was nothing short of perfect. She was so much help throughout the entire weekend and even several weeks before. I trusted her opinion on quite a few things, and our day turned out to be absolutely magical. Honestly, our wedding was picture perfect in our eyes, and if anything went wrong, I had no idea! She made me feel comfortable and eased any anxiety I may have had. I can't recommend Crystal enough. She is sweet but still assertive, and managed to handle my rowdy and boozy quests. THANK YOU, Crystal!
Second, Darcy helped me with getting decor and my overall "theme" for our wedding. She was quick to offer advice and set up vision boards. When I walked into our reception hall, everything was a dream. The set up (thanks to Crystal and staff) was exactly how I envisioned it.
Planning a wedding from a separate state is hard, but this team helped me through it!
